This 190SL has undergone a complete restoration. it is in
immaculate condition. It runs and drives great. It has both the
Hard and Soft tops. The 190 SL presented an attractive, more
affordable alternative to the exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL,
sharing its basic styling, engineering, detailing, and fully
independent suspension. Both cars had double wishbones in front and
swing axles at the rear. Instead of the 300 SL's expensive
purpose-built W198 tubular spaceframe, the 190 SL's R121 structure
used a shortened unitary floorpan modified from the W121 base
saloon. The 190 SL was powered by a new, slightly oversquare 105
PS (77 kW; 104 hp) Type M121 BII 1.9 L straight-four SOHC engine.
Based on the 300 SL's straight six, it had an unchanged 85 mm
bore and 4.3 mm reduced 83.6 mm stroke, was fitted with twin-choke
dual Solex carburetors, and produced gross 120 hp (89 kW; 122
PS). In detuned form, it was later used in the W120 180 and W121
190 models. All descriptions are made in good faith and are subject
